JPPG Holiday Party and Awards Banquet

The menu can best be described as ‘contemporary’ Italian. Many dishes will not be what you think of as ‘traditional’ Italian, and only a couple will be pasta dishes. You can be sure this is not a ‘spaghetti & garlic bread’ kind of meal or restaurant!

Here are a few of our menu selections:

  • Carving station with Roast Beef & Pork
  • Rosemary herbed potatoes
  • Sautéed Shrimp
  • Eggplant Parmesan
  • antipasto dishes
  • Homemade bread
  • Homemade dessert & pastry bar (including that yummy cheesecake that you sampled at our November meeting)

This year we are bringing back the tradition of FREE Door Prizes! That’s right……. everyone that attends (including guests) will receive a complimentary Door Prize ticket. Be ready… your 2011 Banquet Committee is putting together some very cool prizes!

Tickets may be purchased until Friday (December 2nd) night!

2010 End of Year Awards and Christmas Party

Our Holiday Party this year was so much fun! With a cozier location, fun Christmas trivia, door prizes, and the Photo Booth, it was an event that we will have to live up to next year!

We welcomed our new President, Damon Fecitt, and the new Board Members including Josh Tayloe, Devin Faulkner and Olis Garber, and said a huge thank you to our outgoing President, Pat Tankersley, who will still sit on the Board of Directors for the next year as a Past President.

One of the highlights of the evening was the presentation of the JPPG End of Year Awards. Each award has a different set of criteria which can be found on the End of Year Awards page. Congratulations to the 2010 recipients of these awards!

PPSNF Holiday Party!

The PPSNF Christmas Party on December 8th is almost here! This year, the party will be held at a NEW location – the beautiful Omni Hotel in downtown Jacksonville! Cocktails will be from 6-7pm with a cash bar and dinner/dancing will be from 7-11pm.

The menu has been selected and we can tell you that you won’t be disappointed! For those who like to get out and move, we will have a dance floor and DJ this year! There will also be a bar, a mentor auction (see below), door prizes, as well as our End-Of-Year Awards! Because we all know that our wallets are a bit tighter this year, we’ve chosen not to have a gift exchange.

We will be collecting toys for Toys For Tots, too, so please bring an unwrapped toy or two for donation to this awesome charity.

Mentor Auctions

Bid on one-on-one time with some of our top local talent, including:

  • 1/2 Day with Susan Michal
  • Full Day with Rick Ferro
  • 1/2 Day with Peggy McAteer
  • Full Wedding Day with Pat and Wanda Tankersley
  • Full Day with Michael Joseph

Mark your calendars now for Tuesday, December 8th!

Our annual PPSNF Member Christmas party will take place this evening at a NEW location!

This year, we will be at the beautiful Omni Hotel in downtown Jacksonville! We’re still working out the details, but as quickly as the next few months go, we wanted to give you plenty of notice for you to save this date for a wonderful evening!
